Please contact TracyMom1 if you have things for this family.

What is your family situation?
I live with my Fiance and 2 children. I am disabled and my fiance works part time due to the need for him to help take care of me. We are fortunate in that we inherited a home in April, but I will not be able to buy any gifts this year for my children. Next year we may be able to finally be self sufficient now that we have an acre and we can do some homesteading type stuff. In the meantime, my children are growing like crazy and wearing floods! We now live in an area that gets up to 5 ft deep snow and I have no boots. We have been working really hard to turn our property into a self sustaining place, with what we have. We really need some tools and supplies to put up fencing so we can get some animals and protect our garden next season. I'm not able to participate a whole bunch but I can read and plan. Thank you so much for any help you can give.
Any allergies or sensitivities in the family? (e.g. cat, dog, smoke) artificial fragrance

Which holiday(s) does your family celebrate? secular Christmas, Yule
